While it doesn’t seem like many of our friends have housewarming parties anymore, we were invited to one tonight. My wife’s best friend Beth and her husband had just moved into a new condominium. I knew that it was going to be a small gathering, and I felt honoured to be on their list.
But we needed to come up with some kind of present for them.
Coming up with something appropriate and unique was a bit of a challenge. They worked well as a couple, but in many respects they were very different people, making finding a gift for the both of them tough.
But we had an ace in the hole.
You see, about a month ago when my wife was helping them pack their house, Beth dropped their box of champagne glasses and broke them all. As far as we knew, they didn’t have any time to buy new ones, so we thought it would be a good choice for a present.
Since we like to buy unique and artistic gifts, we bought them champagne flutes from DesignsByNN.com, a website that specialized in personalised gifts. We really felt that they were a perfect choice for them, and I know they love unique glassware as much as we do.
I guess we’ll find out in a couple hours when we attend their party – I’m confident they will love them!
